Nogaro & Charade 2009 All Platforms – Released
A month ago, Pixim has released two French tracks for rFactor, bringing Nogaro and Charade to the simulation. Now, Neel Jani has converted Charade to GTR2, GT Legends and RACE 07 while thierry81 has taken care of Nogaro.
Officially called Circuit Paul Armagnac, the track near Nogaro in south-western France was opened in 1960 and has hosted many notable events ever since. Current races hosted on the track include the FFSA GT championship as well as an annual FIA GT round.
Also known as the Circuit Clermont-Ferrand, Charade has hosted four editions of the French Grand Prix between 1965 and 1972 and also served as a filming location for the movie Grand Prix. Back in 1989, the nine kilometer circuit was shortened to four kilometers and has served as testing and racing school venue ever since. Despite playing no role in professional motor sports anymore, the track is still famous for bearing close resemblance to the Nürburgring Nordschleife in terms of challenge for the drivers.
